"Of all the species in this universe, HUMANS are my least favorite."


"They're cruel, they're selfish, they're relentless, they're greedy, and they have absolutely no remorse for any of they pain they cause, or the planets they destroy."

"Aren't... you human?"

"That doesn't change how I feel about them." -- Anon Guest

"And what's worse," continued Human Vid as she waited for her turn at the buffet, "is that we're so very stupid. You know the system I'm from? Planitia Magus?"

"The stellar cluster with the fortuitous planetary alignment, yes." Companion Thi remained wary, though ze was growing used to Human Vid's wild gesturing.

"Four stars, each with a minimum of three planets in the goldilocks zones, orbiting around each other so it made travel between all those worlds ridiculously easy. You know what we did with that? We flakking wrecked it. We picked the best planet and in four generations, turned it into a polluted shithole. Then we moved to the next-best planet and did the exact same thing! We weren't even that great when we just had one planet. My crazy ancestors flakked that up, too. There's Deregger worlds everywhere like none of us can learn from the lessons of history and my lot are playing duck duck goose with planets!" She only stopped to ask the server for some of her favourites. "We're stupid and vile and shouldn't be allowed anywhere without a keeper."

Thursday, Woes Incoming

Things are not looking great for Capt. S. The cancer is killing her appetite and she needs to eat to have the energy to fight the bloody thing. Too bad that medical cannabis is still illegal in our neck of the woods.

Watching someone spiral out of this world is no picnic. Beloved had to rush to the hospital from work and then drive back late at night because there were no rentable bedrooms anywhere.

Functioning on TWO HOURS' SLEEP, poor darling.

Next election for sure, the coal-loving administration is out on its collective arse. We, as a nation, are pretty much going to have to vote for anyone who promises to do something for our environment or suffer worse next time.

Odds are that very many more won't survive the next time. Lives have been lost. Flora and fauna have been lost. Entire towns are nothing but ash and rubble. It's going to cost billions to even try to rebuild. Billions more than

Well crap

My usual sleepy-time medication, a herbal anti-anxiety mix, failed and I woke up at 3AM today. I've been fighting it for an hour, but once I'm awake, I'm awake.

So I surrendered and prepared for today, only to find a whole bunch of vehicle related bills on my desk. Including a (gasp) speeding ticket! So I hate myself now because I'm usually so very good at keeping to the limit or just under it by 1kph.

And it's worse because Beloved took

Oh me Feet

The problem with the daily grind [or at least, my version of it] is that once my shoes are on, I don't take them off. Which means that, by the time I have the opportunity to treat my feet, I lack the energy to do so.

And I'm grumpy when my feet hurt.

Which makes shopping for anything a trial for Beloved because I whinge a lot. Even when I don't mean to whinge, I whinge. And whingeing drains Beloved like a

Poo bum wee

I just spent all day trying to come up with something clever and winding up with fail.

And then, to top it off, I tried to make Spore work on my Mac again.

I know there’s worse things to happen to people than spending all day on a computer, but… I was trying my hardest to be clever and the universe just kept on reminding me that I’m stupid.

I feel pretty damn worthless right now.
